    When I looked them up, I thought this was some indie developer awards or something...until I saw "Dirt Rally" and "Mad Max". Heck, Arkham knight is there, too (despite it and MM coming out last year..?).

    That's a somewhat odd list... What exactly are the qualifications..?

    My thought was how LARGE a list it was. Makes being nominated, per se, look a lot less like an achievement.

    But I'm still happy to add my vote to the mix.

    Poke Mongo? That sounds like a fun mini game but I'm sure it would get old fast. And who the heck is Mongo?

    Yeah I play a lot of this game and, honestly, it doesn't deserve a reward. It's a cash grab filled with micro transactions. It's bad. This is not a game I encourage. Horrible character designs, can't control bot targeting, wait times are too long, annoying duplicate system that means that some characters will FOREVER remain out of your reach. The idea of making each character have 3-4 copies with them counting as separate bots is so stupid and also contributes to keeping some characters only obtainable through a very LARGE amount of luck. Loot system and Resource theft system are too unfair. We could have EASILY gotten a sequel to a good Transformers game like Fall of Cybertron or Armada for the PS2. Seriously. There\'s better shit you could be doing with your time than playing this game. Mobile game or not, this is atrocious and we should really be raising our standards.

    And I haven't even bought it yet.

    I\'m in shock that this got nominated for anything. I deleted it after I got kicked out of my alliance (which was within the first 4-5 days of having it)

    If the award is based on the money made, this game would/should win. Based on the gameplay? I agree with everything you stated. It must be nominated solely on its popularity.

    Honestly, given the sheer number of nominees, I'm thinking it was nominated solely on its existing.

    Jeepers, no offense to Earth Wars but it doesn't hold a candle to Uncharted 4. Voted.

    Yeah, seriously? A short campaign, simplistic gameplay? No way Earth Wars deserves to win. And I play it every day!

    Either Mortal Kombat XL or Uncharted 4 is going to win, imo. My vote is on Uncharted 4 though.

    I guess TIGA's standards must be really low because Earth Wars is absolute garbage.

    Or more likely, someone at Hasbro/whoever passed a few thousand under the table for name publicity.

    This doesn't deserve a dog biscuit, or any type of reward, due to it being a P2W, cruddy clone of other clones for mobile. I hope it quickly dies, just like most other freemium tat on mobile.

    Besides:
